Environment & Energy
Rural landowners have the potential to generate a significant amount of energy, either from the natural resources on their land, or by utilising waste products from existing enterprises.
How we can help you:
We work with in excess of 2 million acres of land under management throughout the UK.
Savills Renewable Energy team specialises in land use issues from initial feasibility and site identification through to planning, EIAs, development and site management.
Renewable energy generation has very strict development criteria; availability of feedstock, wind speed, grid connection, capital funding and planning policies to name a few. The scale of the development is constrained by the lowest common denominator. With our team of specialists we are ideally placed to assist with any Environmental energy proposals. We have unrivalled access to the rural, commercial and industrial owners and occupiers of property via a powerful network of contacts. Our approach combines professional skills with timely project delivery in the following areas:
- Site Assessment and Promotion
Savills offer a service to farmers and other landowners assessing the potential of their land holdings for commercial renewable energy projects.
- Site Search and Acquisition
Savills has a wealth of experience acting for developers in the identification of suitable sites for energy development.
